All IVF patients know that the only tangible product an IVF clinic can deliver is embryos.  After the embryo has been transferred into the uterus, the doctor has no control over the implantation process. This is a complex biological phenomenon, and is impacted by many variables, most of which we do not understand.

This is why it's so important that IVF clinics provide embryo photos to all their patients - so they can prove they have provided high quality medical care, irrespective of the outcome of the IVF cycle ( which is not in anyone's control). This is good for both the doctor and the patient, and is a practise all good clinics follow all over the world.

In this day and age, when so many IVF patients from India spend hours on google in order to learn about IVF, it continues to amaze me why even these articulate, well-read, highly educated , assertive and affluential women don't insist on their IVF doctors giving them photos of their embryos prior to transfer ?

Is it because they are scared to speak up ? Because they are women ?

Would it help if their husbands took a more active role ?
